MANSFIELD, Ohio — Mansfield police are asking the public’s help to find a 20-year-old woman last heard from on Saturday, Nov. 16, and her 28-year-old boyfriend.

Kyla Hayton was reported missing on Nov. 18, and according to her family, was last heard from on Nov. 16, police stated in a news release.

Hayton was believed to be with her boyfriend, Todd Burkhart.

It was later learned by Mansfield police that Burkhart was reported missing to Ashland police, shortly after Hayton was reported missing.

Police have been unable to contact either of them.

Family members said they were believed to be traveling together to Columbus and possibly on to Dayton.

Earlier this week, the vehicle that they were believed to be driving was found unoccupied in Dayton. The vehicle did not turn up any additional information on their whereabouts.

Mansfield police took over both investigations after it was discovered Hayton and Burkhart were both living in Mansfield at the time they were reported missing.

Anyone with information on either missing person is asked to contact their local law enforcement agencies or Mansfield police at 419-755-9724.
